Subject: Crime sometimes doesn't pay.
Two former upper-middle-class kids (Helen Mack and Richard Cromwell), now all but destitute, commit a robbery and hide the loot, expecting to retrieve it after they're released from prison. Of course everything conceivable goes wrong. This somewhat typical Depression era second feature also has Lionel Atwill and Marjorie Main in supporting roles. Surprisingly engaging, this fast-paced little morality play is also worth a look for being one of Helen Mack's better performances, as well as evidence for why Richard Cromwell remained stuck in B features. The 53 minute print is a second-release edit of the 62 minute original, which has since been lost. It's just a guess, but I think the edit probably did more good than harm. This is the kind of movie that's best kept as compact as possible.

FOOTNOTE: The correct title is "The Wrong Road." The correct release date is 1937.

CAST NOTE: In show business from early childhood, petite Helen Mack is probably best remembered for her starring roles in "She" (1935) and "Son of Kong." After retiring from films she became a successful radio and television producer.

Subject: I liked it
Even though it's corny I liked the straight up way they come right out and say, "Gee, crime sure doesn't pay judge!" or something to that effect.
Most criminals don't talk like they're reading from a dictionary, but they did in these old movies! I find that entertaining. lol

Subject: instantly forgettable
Badly dated ,syrupy B picture with some well known character actors in supporting roles but otherwise with nothing to recommend it

Subject: It's alright
A couple rob the bank. They get $100,000 and hide it in a music box. They are caught and sentenced to prison. Upon their release, they hope the money will still be in the box they left with an antique dealer. Unfortunately, the dealer died and they must find the missing fortune.
Watch it if you've seen all the other movies at this site, if you don't watch it don't regret it. It's not that good.
